The Singing Tree at The V&A

10:00am – 5:45pm
Free

This year’s V&A Christmas Tree has been designed by set designer Es Devlin , renowned for her work with the arts organisations like Royal Opera House, National Theatre and artists including Beyonce, Kanye West and Adele. To see her work will normally set you back a fair chunk of change, but you can see (and contribute) to this interactive installation throughout the festive season. It has been produced in collaboration with video designer Luke Halls, creative technologist Ross Goodwin, creative studio Sunshine and music & sound collective Res.Lab. The Singing Tree will come to life via machine learning and thousands of words collected from the public. Visitors are invited to give a festive word, which will be transformed into an audio-visual carol, which illuminates the tree accompanied by an interactive choir of human and synthesised voices.
